B25 Salvage Planned
An airplane that crashed 44 years ago near Fairbanks may fly again. The B-25 bomber was being used for firefighting when it belly landed on a Tanana River sandbar in June 1969. No one died in the crash, but the hulk of the World War 2 bomber was damaged and never removed. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, a pair of aircraft mechanics from Michigan are planning a rescue attempt.
